Crews Working to Restore Power to Remaining Santa Ynez Valley Customers

 A downed power line left more than 200 Santa Ynez-area customers without electricity for several hours on Tuesday, according to Pacific Gas & Electric Co. spokesman Mark Mesesan.

Just before noon customers lost power, with some 2,100 PG&E customers initially affected. 

A downed power line was blamed and likely was related to the rainy weather, Mesesan said.

While power for most of the customers was restored nearly immediately through reswitching, 224 customers remained without power as of 4 p.m.

Crews estimate the remaining customers would have power restored by 7 p.m., Mesesan added.

“Safety is our top priority and we’re working as quickly as it is safe to do so,” he said. "We regret any inconvenience to our customers."

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
